I. Introduction of ACTS and SC, SAC and Working Group Meeting
Milestone SEP. 2009 The initiative of establishing a typhoon and heavyrain research center in Taipei was proposed by National Science Council (NSC) in the 37 th APECISTWG Meeting at Suzhou, China. JAN. 2010 It is recommended by consensus from representatives of APEC Member Economics in the Asia‐Pacific Typhoon Workshop (APTW) at Manila to be named “APEC Research Center for Typhoon and Society” (“ACTS” for short) APR. 2010 The initiative was approved in the 38 th APEC‐ISTWG meeting at Singapore. SEP. 2010 Full proposal of ACTS establishment was approved by Member Economies of APEC in the 39 th ISTWG meeting at Sendai, Japan. NOV. 2010 The Grand Opening of the ACTS was held in Taipei. The center started to function and 1 st SC and SAC joint meeting was held at Taipei at the same time.
APEC Research Center for Typhoon and Society (ACTS) Establishment (Grand Opening 22 November 2010) The ACTS is an APEC self-funded Center which approved by Industrial Science and Technology Working Group (APEC-ISTWG) in September 2010.
